8.1.7 Installation Problem on Pentium IV Sony VAIO PCV-RX651 with XP Operating System

Have problem installing Oracle 8i Enterprise Edition on a SONY VAIO with XP Personal Edition. The "Explore CD" and "Browse Documents" buttons of the Oracle Universal Installer/Autorun responded but the "Install/DeInstall Products" button did not. Oracle 8i DB from the same CD was installed and ran just fine on a Pentium III Toshiba laptop with Win2000 ?! Please help.
Thanks.

Oracle Universal Installer (OUI) for 8.1.x Hangs on Machines
with Pentium 4
Processors
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Versions Affected
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Oracle 8.1.5
============
Oracle Universal Installer 1.6.0.9.0
Oracle 8.1.6
=============
Oracle Universal Installer 1.7.0.19.0
Oracle 8.1.7
==============
Oracle Universal Installer 1.7.1.9.0
Platforms Affected
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Any platform that uses the Intel Pentium 4 processor, with the
Sun JRE
and Symmantec JIT will encounter this problem. Windows NT,
Windows 2000
and NetWare platforms are confirmed to be affected.
Description
~~~~~~~~~~~
When installing Oracle Products with the Oracle Universal
Installer (8.1.x)
on machines that use the Sun JRE and Symmantec JIT, the
installer hangs.
Specifically for the Windows platform, the following version
of the Symmantec
JIT or earlier will encounter the failure:
Symantec Java! JustInTime Compiler Version 3.10.107 for JDK
1.2.
Details regarding this issue can be found at:
http://developer.intel.com/design/processor/future/manuals/knowni ssue.htm
How to determine if you have Symmantec Java for JDK 1.2:
1. Select the file "symcjit.dll" and right click on it.
2. Select Properties, then the Version tab.
3. Under Microsoft Windows*, the properties of the DLL are:
"Symantec Java! JustInTime Compiler Version 3.10.107 for
JDK 1.2 Copyright (C)
1996-99 Symantec Corporation Dynamic Link Library file".
DLLs older than this will also not work. "
Likelihood of Occurrence
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Any platform that uses the Intel Pentium 4 processor, with the
Sun JRE
and Symmantec JIT will encounter this problem. Windows NT,
Windows 2000 and NetWare platforms are confirmed to be
affected.
Possible Symptoms
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The failure typically is that the affected application simply
terminates.
Workaround
~~~~~~~~~~
Not only will OUI be affected by this bug, most of the
post-install
configuration tools will also be affected. Running these
tools with "-nojit"
specified will avoid the hang, but it is not simple to specify
"-nojit" for
some of the products.
The following workaround works for the Windows operating
system:
a. Copy only the install directory from the CD to the hard
disk ,say, e:\temp.
b. Open oraparam.ini and make the following modifications
(Assuming CD
drive is f:)
* Change the "SOURCE=" line to use the full path to the CD
instead of a
relative path. (i.e., SOURCE=f:\stage\products.jar)
* Change the "JRE_LOCATION" line to use the full path to the
CD instead of a
relative path. (i.e.,
JRE_LOCATION=f:\stage\Components\oracle\swd\jre\1.1.7\1\DataFiles
\Expanded)
* Change the "OUI_LOCATION" line to use the full path to the
CD instead of a
relative path. (i.e.,
OUI_LOCATION=f:\stage\Components\oracle\swd\oui\1.6.0.9.0\1\DataF
iles\Expanded
* Change the "JRE_MEMORY_OPTIONS" line to add "-nojit" as the
first argument.
(i.e., JRE_MEMORY_OPTIONS=-nojit -ms16m -mx32m)
^^^^^^
* Other entries should remain the same
c. Launch setup.exe from the temporary location on your hard
drive (i.e.
e:\temp\install\win32\setup.exe). This will use the
modified
oraparam.ini and pick up the information from the CD since
the absolute
locations are specified.
Choose a Custom install and choose not to create a database
during the
install. This way, the Database Configuration Assistant will
not be launched
during installation.
The Net8 Configuration Assistant will still be launched, and
there is no way
to suppress it. You will need to kill the Net8 Configuration
Assistant if it
hangs due to the bug. The installation still will have been
successful, and
you can run the DBCA and NetCA after installation.
To kill NetCA if it hangs during installation:
In the "Configuration Tools" window, highlight the "Net8
Configuration
Assistant" and click "Stop". If that does not work, look for
the most recent
JRE process using the Task Manager, and kill it manually.
NOTE: the OUI
itself will also have a jre process. Be sure to kill the one
with the most
recent date, which should be the jre process being used for
Net8CA, not the
one for OUI itself.
After killing the configuration tools and continuing through
the installation
to the "End of Installation" screen, you should modify the
configuration tools
to use "-nojit", then call the appropriate tools from the
Start Menu.
Once installation is complete, each of the following files in
the ORACLE_HOME
needs to be modified:
assistants\dbca\dbassist.cl
assistants\dbma\dbmig.cl
assistants\ifa\ifa.cl
bin\elogin.cl
bin\owm.cl
ldap\oidamdin\oidadmin.cl
network\tools\netasst.cl
network\tools\netca.cl
owm\install\instelogin.cl
owm\install\instowm.cl
Edit the contents of the above files to add "-nojit" as shown
below:
Command=("C:\Program Files\Oracle\jre\1.1.7\BIN\JREW" -nojit
-classpath ....
this is the only thing you need to add --> ^^^^^^
Then, launch the necessary tools, like Net8CA and DBCA from
the Start Menu.
Patches
~~~~~~~
Currently there is not a patched installer available to deal
with this
problem, the workaround listed above must be used.

================================================================
The solution of making a local copy of the installation CD on
the hard disk and renameing symcjit.dll to symcjit.old does
work to allow installation of Oracle Client 8.1.7 on a Pentium 4
This function is useful and you can find two file to rename
===============================================================
Windows ME
Solution to the installation of Oraclei8.1.7 PE in Windows Millennium
Oracle does not support installing version 8.1.7 PE into
Windows Millennium.
As an unsupported workaround, you may add the following line
to the [compatibility95] section of win.ini prior to
installation:
Jrew=0x00080000
After setup is complete, Oracle will recommend a reboot.
There is one additional step necessary prior to reboot;
Oracle may add a non-standard path statement to the
autoexec.bat file. Please modify this SET PATH
statement to use short-filenames if you find a quoted
LFN string represented as part of the path. You can
confirm that the path was merged successfully into the
registry after reboot by examining the PATH variable
in the registry at
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\SessionManager\Environment
Symptoms of a missing Oracle path statement in the registry are that Net8 Easy Config will not launch.
Please note that Oracle does not support the use of this
product in Windows ME, but have authorized these workarounds
for testing purposes only.
===============================================================
Windows XP Home Edition
Oracle 8i is not certified on windows XP. Even if yes, it must be Windows XP Professional.
You can install Oracle8i on windows XP Home Edition, try like this:
1 - Copy your Oracle CD into hard disk in your
machine. For example Copy from oracle8i CD into C:\Oracle\ ...
2 - Search the two files named Symcjit.dll on the D drive (where you have copied Oracle8i. You can found them in (example):
C:\Oracle\stage\Components\oracle.swd.jre\1.1.7.30\1
\DataFiles\Expanded\jre\win32\bin\symcjit.dll
3 - Rename this file (Example): symcjit_back.dll (make sure to find two files and rename them)
4 - Execute the Oracle setup.exe from C:\Oracle\setup.exe
===============================================================
When Oracle 8i dies on the install or the installer hangs, here is the fix for this, make sure that you have Service Pack 2 installed.
1. \JRE\1.3.1\ From Sun. (You can download java program at http://java.sun.com/products/jdk/1.1/jre/download-jre-windows.html)
2. Install the java file.
There is also a problem in the installation disk.
3. Make a copy of the Oracle 8i disk on the local hard disk.
4. Do a search for the two files called symcjit.dll and rename them for example: symcjit.old.
5. Install Oracle from the win32 directory.

  • Problems with Illustrator CC 2014 in Sony Vaio Fit 15A with N-Trig touch screen and digitizer pen.

    Hello to everybody!
    Some times ago Adobe has updated Illustrator to CC 2014 version and now it support touch pressure\pan\zoom in Windows 8 tablets. I have Sony Vaio Fit 15A with N-Trig touch screen and digitizer pen with pressure-sensitive support.
    I was extremely disappointed that the brush in new version does not work correctly. Watch the video please that I did specifically for the demonstration.
    I use Adobe Illustrator CS6 and Adobe Illustrator CC 2014 for comparison. In the old version the brush is works correctly. You must do a lot of clicks to start the brush in CC 2014 version (please see video). What causes of the problem? Please help me!

    You have to copy the content of cd to a temporary directory on
    your hard disk. Rename all symcjit.dll to symcjit.dll.old and
    run setup.exe from the temporary directory on your hard disk.

  • Problem with zip operating system command

    Hello,
    i have the following configuration in the file receiver adapter:
    Directory: /tmp/
    File Name Scheme: %name%.txt
    Variable substitution:
    Variable Name: name                 Reference: payload: record,1,name,1
    Run Operating system command:
    /usr/bin/zip /tmp/%f.zip %F
    The execution is succesful, but i have a small problem. The file name is "file.txt.zip", the .txt should appear but i dont know how to skip it, I have tried so many ways but it doesnt work, I should receive a file called "file.zip" With a file inside in txt format...
    Thanks,
    Luis

    Hi Sriram,
    Thanks, but that wouldnt work out, Im using the %f for my file name, so this move command shouldnt work for me, because my filename changes in every execution, so I cant write something like this: mv file.txt.zip file.zip
    The only solution I see would would be a command which deals with strings and that could remove the four last characters of "%f"..but I havent found anything for doing it.
    Regards,
    Luis

  • Problem With mac Operating system

    ok, had a problem with a piece of software and was told to try and "downgrade" my OS. so i started an installer that was an installer to a previous system. i was on 4.8 and was trying to go to 3.4 i think. I got half way thru and it said start the installer again. restarted. instead of the apple logo coming up a round cross comes up. i connected to my comp thru another comp using the firewire but my user folder is empty. anyways i can find anything in the users folder and fix this problem? cheers

    Who told you to downgrade your OS X version and was this due to the software not being compatible with your OS X version which was 10.4.8?
    What software?
    Your computer detail provided indicates you have an Intel Mac and if so, you certainly cannot downgrade to 10.3 - any 10.3.x version. All Intel Macs have shipped with Tiger (10.4.x) pre-installed and there are no OS X versions prior to 10.4.x that is compatible with an Intel Mac and even if so, you cannot install an earlier or previous OS X version on a Mac that shipped with a later version.
    Unless you meant 10.4.3 which is the version that was pre-installed on your Intel Mac and the version included with the OS X install package that shipped with your Mac when new.
    Did this person who told you to downgrade your OS also tell you to be sure to create a backup or update your existing backup before doing so?
    Did you choose Archive & Install with an option to preserve user and network settings?
    If not and you choose Erase & Install, then your hard drive was completely erased first.

  • I am having problems with my Elements 12 program "freezing". I am not sure if it is an incompatibility with my operating system or my inexperience.

    It has frozen once or twice during the uploading process. My bigger concern is when I am trying to follow tutorials and the program seems to freeze and does not execute the task. This has happened several times when I attempt to use the brushes or other tools. I am using a Mac Trackpad. I don't know if the problem is originating in this step, possibly, I am not using the trackpad correctly or if another problem exists. For instance, when I attempt to the brushes I get a "star" to paint my picture vs the round circle that the tutorials are showing.
    I am using an older Mac computer; however, we did update the software prior to installing the Adobe Elements program.
    Any guidance would be appreciated. I am also wondering if there are any Adobe Photoshop tutors available.

    Are you using PREMIERE Elements for video editing, or PHOTOSHOP Elements for photo editing?

  • JAR file problem with windows operating system rare

    I hope I can help with this!You should know, if you don't already, that your 'super rare' version of Windows Vista, sounds like one of numerous, illegal, cracked and knocked-off versions of Vista that have been floating about. Things like Windows Vista Silver and Windows Vista Sky are not only completely illegal reproductions of pirated copies of Vista but they often have terrible bugs and security deficiencies that can sacrifice the integrity of your data. Honestly, if you're already shooting yourself in the foot with this bootlegged operating system, just get Linux, it's just like stealing but without the unsavory prison shower encounters.

  • I have a iMac with tiger operating system can I install lion with no problems?

    if we do the up date from tiger to lion will we lose any datta like pictures and such?

    To see what processor you have, do "About this Mac" from your Apple menu and see what the processor like says. Looks like this on a PowerPC Mac:
    If it says "PowerPC" as in the image, and your processor's speed is shown as 867mHz or greater, the highest Mac OS you can run is 10.5.8 Leopard.

  • Security Problems with new operating system (5.1)

    Using the new operating system you can use the camera when the ipod is locked. When you do this it overides the 4 digit security code giving full access to your ipod without entering the code. Surely this should not happen as the security of your ipod or iphone should not be compromised in this way. It needs a fix. Anyone else noticed this?

    Are you sure you are just not trying to access the iPod before the time you set the screen-lock to engage has passed?
    If the time period is set for say one minute and then you tell the iPod to sleep, you can still access the camera and then the whole iPod. But you can simply do that anywhap by jus sliging to to unloack.  If the time period has not passed you do not need to enter your passcode.  Othr users have forgot this and raised the same issue as you.
